So I taped a magazine photo into my physical journal (as opposed to this digital one) this morning, and grooved on the photo of food so much that I was inspired to write down a list of everything in the photo. I found the process of simply writing those words to be as good as having that pile of deliciousness in front of me, ready to cook.
And you’d imagine my pleasure when six hours later, I read my favorite food columnist Jean Sanders’ ‘Food Friday’ column from yesterday. She did the same thing! Check it out here.
Jean pens my absolute favorite weekly column: Food Friday, found in the Talbot and Chestertown Spy online newspapers. If I had the time / talent / connections, I’d be her agent and get her column syndicated nationally – everyone should have access to this! Terrific writing, food ideas, and her links? Yumsters!
Here’s today’s column: http://talbotspy.org/food-friday-picnic-season/
